On Tuesday 26th January, Terrain Tamer’s very own Allan Gray made the Australia Day 2021 Honours list and was awarded a ‘Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM)’ for service to the community through social welfare organisations.
For over a decade the 4WD Industry Icon has been involved with the St Vincent De Paul Society Soup Van service, he’s well known when he’s out volunteering each week and has met some fantastic people on the street during this time.
‘I need to go out and be schooled and educated by the people on the streets’
When COVID-19 arrived in Australia, regulations restricted the 86 year old from being able to continue his weekly routine supporting Vinnies. He is only just now able to visit his friends again and it won’t be long until he starts encouraging others to go with him, so they too can see the other side of homelessness.
With his hard work and selflessness showing in everything he does, Allan is truly deserving of such recognition and hopes that his actions can one day be forwarded on.
